Why? Pokémon Organised Play was to the point, and made sense. "Play! Pokémon" just seems random.

At least the logo is better.

Pointless Name Changes FTW!
Now instead of having a decent name like Pokemon Organized Play, we now have a confusing name called "Play! Pokemon".
And the logo looks like a ripoff of every sports league's logo.

The biggest thing hurting people playing Pokemon is hidden game mechanics and slow pace of battles. Logo looks nice.

Unoriginality.

I can already see several lawsuits coming.
The logo is pretty unoriginal too.

New Logo:
MLG:
MLG doesn't play pokemon, but they play brawl.

It doesn't look that similar. Yes, it uses a silhouette of a completely different thing. The logo could do without the double border, though.

That logo would make a cool avatar. I want to change the black to blue though, and make one showing Gold instead with gold and silver colors.

So, who wants to bet that this has something to do with the secret forum under construction on pokemon.com, that some people from the community have managed to stumble upon by accident?
